remote recording of a video-voiceover - software recommendations?

Post by SaveOurSounds »

I have to record a voiceover for my video remotely to my timeline from a professional speaker.

He should be able to see my timeline video with timecode, hear (and maybe see) me, and be able record a local backup while I ju

Can anyone recommend some software or cloud solution?

Its ony a one time recording right now, so it shouldnt be too expensive.

I read about Source Connect, which is 35 dollars a mont and 75 dollar for setup.

And SessionLinkPro Recording, which is 26 dollars and doesnt seem to have a one time fee.

There used to be VST Connect as well but se website is down.

Any experience with those or any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated! :)

A solution that's often recommended is 'Cleanfeed'. I was on the point of using it m'self a while ago, but the requirement went away...

Another solution would be to send him the video using something like WeSendIt and get him to record his commentary on his phone or another recorder, making sure he records in WAV format. Phones are surprisingly good recorders these days; I have had excellent results in this way on many occasions.

He then sends the audio to you and you sync-up in post... Voila!

I'm a great believer in going for the simple solution if one's available!

As above - simple solution. Send a file, receive a file - edit it into place.

This can be true, but some are, some aren't. Ask for a voice sample first.
I've had great results using from some cheap plug-in mics from Amazon.
